OBJECTIVE A new noninvasive method, electrical impedance tomography (EIT), was used to make pressure-impedance (PI) curves in a lung lavage model of acute lung injury in pigs. The lower inflection point (LIP) and the upper deflection point (UDP) were determined from these curves and from the traditional pressure-volume (PV) curves to determine whether the PI curves resemble the traditional PV curves. Furthermore, regional differences in the mentioned determinants were investigated. DESIGN… CONTINUE READING
